It’s wedding season! But are all of the wedding invitations you’ve been receiving starting to look alike? A white background with jet black calligraphy or maybe a photo backdrop with some white text… Don’t get me wrong these are both BEAUTIFUL choices, but sometimes receiving an invite that is truly unique is much more appreciated and worth while, right? Everyone loves to see something new and unique so they can gain inspiration for their own events.

So with the help of stationery company, Basic Invite, here are a few ways to create truly unique wedding invitations that both you and your guests will adore!
